Troops Leaving Bridges

State police are replacing National Guard troops who have been patrolling three major California bridges since last fall´s terrorist attacks. Governor Davis says uniformed troops armed with automatic weapons will continue their watch over San Francisco´s Golden Gate bridge, because it is a national treasure. The troops will be gone by month´s end from San Francisco´s Bay Bridge, the Vincent Thomas Bridge at the Port of Los Angeles and San Diego´s Coronado Bridge. They will be replaced by increased patrols by California Highway Patrol officers, local police, surveillance from boats and aircraft, and 24-hour electronic monitoring.
